How often should I go to Confession?

Catholics are required to receive the Sacrament at least once per year. However, if you are aware of having committed any mortal (serious) sin, you should receive the Sacrament.

That being said, all are encouraged to take advantage of the Sacrament on a regular and frequent basis.

Frequent reception helps us keep aware of our spiritual progress and provides the grace to overcome our sins.

Briefly examine your conscience at the end of each day, and make an act of contrition.

In this way you will become more sensitive to what is really happening in your own life, and you will be more prepared and more honest as you come to confession.
